Found what??

Thanks. I see it now. That is tragic. Ever thought about what would happen to a back seat passenger in the GTO if they had to get out. Scares me.

Yep that is bad. Feel sorry for the family of the dead driver and will be thinking of the injured officer.

Looks like I will be cancelling my plans on going to Vegas in my Red Goat. We may have to take the womans car now. I bet I would get stopped a few times just trying to get from the highway to my hotel.

Goes to show you that some people just don't know when to quit if they race on the street.

I've run into a few "do or die" types in some friendly off the light accelerations. When I shut it down at 70 in a 45 and they harass me you've just got to know if they couldn't pull you between 0 and 75 mph they never really were going to.

Yes, it is tragic. Driver of the Silver GTO that died was 36 yrs old! If the
red pontiac was a GTO, I wonder why they were racing to begin with...
Unless it was for mods or something .

Here is the link again...The thread is up to 7 pages since yesterday.

So first it was a taxi-cab that the guy hit while racing, now it's a cop car and the guy lost control. Jeez are we even certain it's a GTO?

It was a taxi being driven by a cop who was working undercover.
